When I first arrived at Bergdorf Goodman for my Pod appointment yesterday, I went straight up to the spa on the ninth floor. Wrong spa they told me, in a rather aggressive tone, go down to the beauty level. The beauty level? It turns out that the Elemis sanctuary is actually hidden away on one of the busiest floors at BG. Go figure.
Once at counter, I was greeted by an elegant esthetician named Irene, who quickly began assessing my skincare needs. First, she took a close-up picture of my face. Then she asked a few questions about my lifestyle and showed me six different maps of my skin, explaining each in basic terms. Finally, Irene analyzed these scans to determine which of their five facials would best address my skincare concerns. It was all rather intriguing and very informative.
The facial itself (a quickie at only 30 mins) was conducted in a little room behind the counter, and on the most peculiar chair imaginable. Their exclusive Japanese massage chair (pictured above) measures your spine, and then works your muscles to promote lymphatic drainage. It's really something else.
By the end of the treatment, my skin was glowing and I felt completely recharged- All in less time than it takes to browse the nearby T. LeClerc counter. But you don't have to take my word for it, just book an appointment on a Tuesday/Wednesday in the month of June, and Elemis will gift you with two treatments for the price of one ($55). So go on, and let us know what you think!
